These chair based exercise classes are designed to develop and improve balance and strength in a supportive group environment. There are four core principles that underpin our Empowering Seniors Program:
- Individualised – the program is adapted to ensure each member participates in exercise that is specific to their needs, goals and condition(s) and follows current best practice guidelines.
- Progressive – members are progressed through their participation in the program to ensure they continue to see changes in their strength and fitness.
- Functional – the exercises we incorporate into the program are functional, strength based nature to assist members to better manage their activities of daily living.
- Supportive – members are supported and educated in accordance with current best practice guidelines throughout the sessions to increase their confidence and ability to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.
